I'm getting the following error in my event logs. When I was initially setting things up FQDN\user syntax. I now know that it is best to use the NetBIOS name. I've changed all of my application pools in IIS and have rebooted the server but I'm still getting this error and I can't figure out where I need to go to change the username.

Did you manage to resolve this

I have the same problem in that the user localmachinename\administrator can't seem to log in ot the database which is on another server. The event log entries are the same.
